  • Fasting and Calorie Restriction

    FMD causes less stress on the body than regular fasting. Dieting can be a way not just to reduce the waistline but to reduce the chances of having diabetes or heart disease. Other benefits includes reduce the risk of cancer and will boost your immune system. As a bonus you will look younger too and that there is no major adverse side effects. Fasting Mimicking Diet is not placing the body in starvation mode but only reducing the calorie intake between 34 to 54 per cent. This simply means FMD will extend your life through a specific composition of proteins, micronutrients, carbs and fats.

    That's a great explanation. I always like this too: it's fasting but with food. Takes away the risk and makes it much more achievable.

      Yes, the idea has a lot of appeal especially if you are not just after losing weight but about improving your health. I would like to spend the rest of my days healthy after I found more about the benefits of Fasting Mimicking Diet. It gives me the chance to still eat food and yet be healthy while doing so because of FMD's benefit. Thanks to ProLon for conceptualizing this. It is a blessing after going through so many kinds of diets.

    I would like to share my personal experience thinking it may help you. I follow jainism and did 8 days straight fasting without any food for religious purpose. When 8 days got finished, I was supposed to start taking food intake progressively and not all things together like I used to have before fasting. Lack of scientific knowledge and urge to have food immediately after breaking the fast caused increased in inches gain and weight gain over a period of time. So, my experience says that fasting can help but you exactly need to know how much food intake to take once you break the fast. Instead, I suggest a holistic and more practical way of calorie restriction i.e. Diet plan.

      That's a great point. How you progress into your normal diet (the transition period) is very important. We encourage starting with light foods (ie. liquids, salads, soups) after a fast. Scientific research shows us the cellular benefit during a fast however it's the period immediately after finishing a prolonged fast (more than 3 days) than pushes healthy stem cells become functioning cells. We are very lucky to have Prof Valter Longo's book The Longevity Diet launching in the UK in a few days and that will definitely provide a good guide to healthy eating when you're not fasting.
